A guide to carbon monoxide...

Carbon monoxide detector beeping

Always treat it seriously when you hear a carbon monoxide detector beeping. The beeping or "chirping" sound is usually quite noticable but nowehere near as loud as when an actual alarm is activated.

Detectors may beep for different reasons but it is always a sign that the detector needs attention. Batteries may need replacing, the detector may be letting you know that it has reached the end of its service life, or the sensor may have stopped functioning properly.

In most homes and buildings there are a number of sources of carbon monoxide.

Always pay attention to a carbon monoxide alarm beeping and always treat the sound of any carbon monoxide alarm seriously - your life and your health could depend on it.
